The King's School in Macclesfield


      Trips and Visits

      We offer a significant range of school trips as a way of enriching our curriculum: we see education outside the classroom as a key part of delivering a rounded education.

      Whether it be through curriculum-enriching trips linked to a specific academic subject, or a month-long cultural experience as part of an expedition to a remote part of the globe, there is something for everyone at King’s.

      Trips are a big part of school life and serve a variety of functions, from academic day trips to theatres and museums to residential trips. There are also a huge number of outdoor pursuits trips; the Duke of Edinburgh scheme; ski trips; sports tours, and finally there are expeditions, such as the recent expeditions to Bolivia, Morocco, India, Namibia and Norway. 

      This year alone, our pupils have experienced:

      • a Year 5 French trip
      • a Year 6 Sports Tour to Jersey
      • Year 7&8 Chateau trip to Normandy
      • numerous DofE expeditions
      • a Senior Rugby Tour to South America (South Africa last year)
      • a 'World Challenge' trip to Java (Costa Rica previously)
      • a Spanish trip to Murcia
      • A German Exchange programme
      • Ski Trips to Italy and France
      • a Business Studies trip to Paris
      • a Classics trip to Greece
      • French work experience in Nantes

      Next year, trips include visits to Japan, China, South Africa and Dubai, to name just a few.
